There have been several threads recently on those.

In my opinion they are junk and should all be recalled.

I wouldn't get one if I were you. Just to much negative feed back with them.

The M&P sport would be a 10x better option imo and they cost about the same.

If he just bought it, you are a bit late on your advice. Why bother?

Yeah, no sense making him feel bad about spending the $600 or so for it.

I guess if you think he has a way to sell it, then let him know it'd be a good decision.

Hmmm - I think I'll stick with forged aluminum - although googling up "Bushmaster C15 durability" brings up mostly positive comments.
